Yes - that was my idea.

My reasoning is that it makes organizing options easier and that users
get introduced into the idea of using dawers.

True - it is not difficult, but might be more intuitive and lead to
easier readable options.

No - I don't think they are needed, as there are many different use
cases for babel - but thinking about it, it might be an idea to insert
the most widely used options for babel and set them at their default
values - so documents become more robust and the options become
introduced to the user.
